Climate Change and Global Warming: A Brief Primer Including the Paris Agreement of 2015 is an introduction to climate science and the current climate crisis that has developed during the past century. Since the impact of climate change will likely impact the Gen Xers and Millennials the most, this book is also for their benefit. Climate change driven by global warming is not difficult to understand and of the world’s climate scientists, 97% agree that human activity in the consumption of fossil fuel is the primary cause. But there are solutions; it is not too late if we act now.
